Decanting FAQ 3 HOW to decant? 1) Store the bottle upright for 24 hours before decanting, so sediments can slide to the bottom of the bottle 2) Ensure that the decanter is clean. If not used for a while, rinse with cold water. Wipe the outside of the decanter dry with a clean cloth, to ensure you have a safe grip. Drain the decanter well – no need to dry the inside with a cloth, a few drops of (clean) water will not harm the wine 3) Hold the decanter in one hand, tilt slightly and pour the wine slowly and steadily into the decanter. While pouring, look at the wine and check that no sediments are pouring out. When you see the sediments, stop pouring (it should be almost empty by then) TIPS & TRICKS: 💡 Choose a spot with good lighting and/or place a white waiters‘ cloth under the decanter so you can see the pouring wine clearly and identify sediments. If you like to impress and show some old school Sommeliers skills, place a small candle underneath the tilted decanter. ☁️ Sediments aren’t always obvious and chunky. Stop when the wine becomes cloudy. ❗️If you are new to decanting, keep the decanter on the table. There is a risk of having the decanter slip or become too heavy if you pour in the air. Safety first. Trust me. I‘ve been there 🤪🙈. #theexpatsommelier #wineeducation #decanting #faq #how #slowlyandsteady #withconfidence #wineskills #sommelier #sommelierlife #instawine #winestagram #longpost
